I killed a dozen the other day and didnt put a dent in them. I have a timberframe/ log house and they are absolutely killing it!

The problem with filling the holes, swatting, etc is that you are attacking after the damage has been done. Plus those methods just can't kill enough to make any difference.

The traps work. You will be amazed at how many of those things there are. You won't get'em all, but you will greatly reduce their numbers and the damage.

How do you combat these boring bees? Is there a natural predator that eats these things? They are wreaking havoc on my pole barn and shop! Any help would be appreciated!

spray surfaces with "Demon TC", its a restricted purchase insecticide and you or someone else will have to have your Tn Dept of Agric card, this chemical is labeled for inside and outside use. I spray the outside of my home[log cabin] two times a year and have never had a problem

My grandpa used to sit on the front porch smoking and drinking his coffee shooting them with a .22 pistol and ratshot. May not be the most effective method but looked fun when I was a kid.

Me and my Father did that too. He had a 9 shot H&R revolver that was a great bee gun. I may shoot a few this weekend now that you mention it. \:\)
